Obituary for Gregory M Lutz
Gregory M. Lutz, Sr., age 58, passed away at Select Specialty Hospitals on Monday, July 20, 2020 surrounded by his family, after a lengthy battle with cancer. He was born in Grant, Michigan to Daniel Lutz, Sr. and Rosalee (Hill) Lutz on October 8, 1961. He grew up in Casnovia and graduated from Kent City High School in 1979. He held a few factory jobs but ultimately went on to be a long-haul truck driver. Greg was a loving father, grandfather, brother, friend, and mentor. He was a big kid at heart who loved to joke around with everyone. His kids meant the world to him, loved spoiling his grandkids and spending time with his family & friends when he was off the road.
Greg is survived by his 3 children, Greg (Naomi) Lutz, Jr., Karen Lutz and Jon Lutz; 4 granddaughters, Sheyenne, Raven, Cara, and Payton; 2 grandsons, Darrius and Tavari; 1 great-grandson Rayshaun; 5 brothers, Danny Lutz, Dennis (Angie) Lutz, Matt (Julie) Lutz, Brian (Teresa) Hugill, and Steve Plato; 2 sisters, Diane Maes and Kathy Lutz; many nieces and nephews; close family friend, Adam (DeAnna) Mancuso. He was preceded in death by his parents, Rose and Dan. The family would like to extend a special thank you to his ex-wife Merry Lesert for all her help in caring for him during these last 6 mos of his life.
As Greg had wished, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2020 at Greg’s home at 1104 17 Mile Rd. NW in Kent City from 4:00 to 8:00 PM.
